Columbus Short Sale Guide - About

Who are you dealing with?

      Ah, a real person. I always look on websites to see who I'm dealing with. List it NOW. Sell it now. Never Look Back. Columbus area short sale guide. How to list your home as a short sale.
It's easy to become disillusioned when you can't find the real people behind the message. Here I am. And I've been here as a Realtor representing sellers in short sale negotiations with lenders and creditors since 1994. I've been through the worst of it and have come out the other side, a little bit scarred, but very experienced.

     My name is Julia Hupp. I am an agent with Red 1 Realty located in Worthington (a Columbus suburb) at 200 E. Campus View Blvd. I can list and sell houses anywhere in Ohio but I concentrate on Central Ohio with special emphasis on Franklin County. I can be found on FaceBook as well as Instagram. Please feel free to find out more about me there. Red 1 Realty

     The fact that speaks the loudest to potential listing clients is the vast number of short sale homes that I have sold.

When you should start

Now. We've seen home owners wait until the Sheriff Sale is scheduled to try to do a short sale on a home. That's too late to start. The best time to start is now.

What it costs you

Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Realtors get paid commission out of the proceeds of the sale. On a short sale there are no proceeds. The commission gets paid but it is subtracted from the funds the lien holders (lenders) would get from the sale. You still need to secure and maintain the property. But you don't pay any commissions.


Even if you include your home in a bankruptcy you still own the home after the bankruptcy is discharged. There are still benefits to selling your home as a short sale after a bankruptcy instead of simply allowing the foreclosure to be completed.


There is no guarantee that you will be able to successfully sell your house as a short sale. However, there is no better way to resolve your foreclosure if you are unable to pay the current amount due plus the accumulating legal expenses incurred by the lender to file the foreclosure.
